for the president when it comes to who would handle egypt better. slowed a slight edge -- stronger edge to romney and who would handle china better and get tough on trade with china the issue of libya seems to be the thing that narrowed this gap from 11-point advantage to barack obama to 4-point advantage. while it was somewhat of a debacle the other night, one person said one and the other person challenged back and forth and the moderator tried to stop it and everyone wound up confused at the end they will have a whole 90 minutes to discuss libya and other issues on monday. >> instead of the moderator moving on bob scheffer is going to be expected to get to the bottom of it and ask the president a lot of questions. the president has one response, which is to accuse mitt romney of political opportunism for the libya attack and politicize the issue. that is one note that you can sound in a debate. on foreign policy the president will have to answer questions who knew what when, how high up in the administration, how come nobody caught this? how come they were not prepared. how come requests for a

with a good idea of attacking mitt romney's record on bain. remember they run this ad. >> they were the majority owner. they were responsible. mitt romney was deeply involved in the influence that he exercised over these companies. >> they made as much money off it as they could and they close closed it down and filed for bankruptcy without concerns and families in the community. >> like a vampire, they came in and sucked the life out of husband. >> he's running for president. and if he's going to run the country the way he ran the business, i wouldn't want him there. >> cenk: that's good. setting up the record with bain is not a positive thing and he's not like us. and it worked. when you look at the polls and say is mitt romney like us? hell no, that's not the case. but you need connective tissue about how he would do in the economy base and this. unfortunately a lot of people have taken this and said, well on the other hand he did make all that money in bain. and mitt romney says himself how successful we was as a businessman. watch all this nonsense. >> romney: i'm the only can

another planet that mitt romney apparently never visited. anyway, it's not that funny. romney would make abortion effectively a criminal act. if you believe the platform he's running on, the running mate he's chosen, the words he's spoken about outlawing abortion, the judges he wants to put on the supreme court. do you know what's cooking here? it's not daddy coming home early for supper. mr. job creator is coming over to boss you around just like he did to jim lehrer and tried to do to candy crowley. he's the big shot who wants to tell what you birth control coverage you can get at work and what you can do with your body. he's got plans for you, and you owe it to yourself to know them. with me is activist lilly ledbetter and jane walsh, whose new book is "what's the matter with white people." thank you for coming on the program tonight. it really has come down to the strange way in which mitt romney speaks, how he speaks almost in a 1950s pre-"mad men" era, if you will, about men and women in the workplace. >> that's right. and he's scaring me to death. it scares me for my family, my ne

of numbers in. is there a drift, a turn, is it moving towards romney clearly ever since that first debate? is that a safe assessment or is it not? >> i think it moved clearly in romney's direction. i think it is now sort of sitting there. the question is does he still have a little momentum or did the president stop him? and, you know, that's -- >> so that's -- a little more momentum left, but he gained ground. >> he gained a lot of ground. this is a coin flip race. it's about whether mitt romney can break through in the three midwestern states, ohio, iowa, and wisconsin. it's the only way the math works. >> you're implying it's going to be so close in the popular vote that these electoral decisions are going to really matter. >> i think they absolutely are going to matter. >> there's not going to be -- >> colorado and virginia -- >> you don't see a national mandate crossing the country -- >> not right now. i am still a believer that it's still possible. >> i think it's still possible. >> what do you think -- do you agree with him it basically moved a big space toward romney after that fi
